Kanye West began another interview on Timcast IRL, only to leave 20 minutes later
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: Kanye West appeared on the Monday night, November 28 episode of podcaster Tim Pool, only to walk out 20 minutes later. The 45-year-old rapper walked off the set of a live podcast after being challenged for his anti-Semitic views.
West, who said he intended to run for US president in 2024 and legally changed his name to Ye in October, was convicted for his numerous anti-Semitic remarks. He tweeted on Oct. 9, which is now deleted: “I’m a little tired tonight but when I wake up I’m going to my death. The funny thing is that I can’t actually be an anti-Semite because black people are actually Jews too. You played with me and tried to throw black balls at anyone who defied your agenda,” the Times of Israel quoted as saying. As a result, many criticized him for the comments and several brands removed him, including his talent agency, fashion brand Balenciaga, Adidas and his bank JP Morgan. He was also removed from Forbes’ billionaires list. Ye reappeared in the news last week when former President Donald Trump had dinner with white nationalist Nick Fuentesht alongside Ye in Mar-a-Lago. And during the podcast, Pool discussed past comments and his meeting with Trump.
“I almost shed a tear”
The rapper explained that his meeting with Trump was scheduled before his tweet but was delayed and that Trump “had no idea” who Fuentes was. He said: “I have to get straight to the heart of this anti-Semitic allegation that’s happening. That’s something — if you read the definition, it says you can’t claim that there are several people in banks or in the media who are all Jewish, or who are anti-Semitic. And this is the truth. Like, it’s the truth. Pool then asked, “In detail. Like, what do you mean?” Ye replied, “I’m saying like, I’ve been called an anti-Semite, right? So there’s different beliefs about our bloodlines, you know, like the documentary that Kyrie [Irving] published and in general America was left ignorant and history was changed. So when we start questioning things that challenge indoctrination, you get it right away… demonized, demonized, and the beauty of this time is that everyone needs to see what really happened. And now we can really understand, we can see that Rahm Emanuel was next to Obama and Jared Kushner was right next to Trump.”
Speaking to Pool, Ye said: “I lost the money for free speech and that makes me the only American we know who really deserves to run the country. Because everyone else — your boy DeSantis, Trump, whoever they’re raising in a petri dish over on the Democrat side — is going to play the game.” Adding, “God is using me. He dissects me, removes all the, you know, “richest person,” all of that so I can serve him. And the more these things are taken away from me, the more I can be empty and be a vessel and be used,” Complex quotes. Ye further explained, “I get hosed down by the press every day and financially I’m just fine. And when I found out they were trying to put me in jail, it was like a dog biting my arm and I almost shed a tear. Nearly. But I walked through them anyway.”
Pool then responds by saying, “I think they were extremely unfair to you.” Ye asks, “But who is ‘she’? We can’t tell who “they” are, can we?” After a while, Ye walks out, who previously warned: “To come here, I feel like it’s a setup to defend show when I have to sit up here and talk about it, you know, ‘You can’t say it was Jews that did it.'”
After Ye stormed out, Pool said, “You guys want to bring that stuff up and think we’re not going to talk? You think Ye’ll come in here and say, ‘Here is my pain, here is my suffering’ and I’ll say, ‘I hear you.’ And then he’s going to say, “And they were Jews,” and I’m going to say, “Okay, but don’t you think about it.” I refuse. I can’t say I’m surprised what [did] I even do something other than ask him please explain? Do you refer to individuals or do you literally blame a whole group of people for powerful individuals harming you?”
